This week's challenge at Color My Heart (http://colormyheartcolordare.blogspot.com/2012/07/color-dare-8.html) was to use Smoothie and it's split complimentary colors, Sky and Pear. I used the sketch for Mojo 251 (http://www.mojomonday.blogspot.com/2012/07/mojo-monday-251.html) and entered this card in that challenge as well. With all the excitement of the new Autumn/Winter 2012 CTMH catalog coming out, I decided this made a fun invitation for my upcoming open house!
As I said, I used the colors Smoothie, Pear, and Sky. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the pennants (which were strung with Smoothie baker's twine and stamped using the A Typeface alpha), the main circular shape was featured on p.51 of the AP handbook and the chevrons were made from negative space left over from cutting several rows of the border featured on p.63. I used the Love Life stamp set (D1482) for the stamped background on the left side and the retired stamp set Remember This for the circlular date stamp. Of course, after I posted this picture I remembered I was going to add some more finishing touches so you can see the completely finished project and additional "recipe" info here: http://littlecropshop.blogspot.com/2012/07/mojo-monday-251.html
Happy crafting! Annette
